New Tool: Ekos Debugger #56099
Over the last few days we've been working on a new tool: Ekos Debugger.

This tool would make submission of logs more convenient for end users. It's available in the Nightly PPA night:

sudo apt-get -y install ekos-debugger

It is still under development. Some features requires latest nightly KStars as well since it controls what kind of logs are turned on/off via DBus and this was just added a few hours ago to Ekos.

It is used to diagnose both KStars and INDI, each separately in a dedicated tab. If a user experienced a crash in Ekos, then they would launch the Ekos Debugger and then run KStars from there. If KStars crash again, it will be caught and the user can simple click save to get the zip file which they can upload to the forum for example. It's hosted in Github: github.com/knro/ekosdebugger

Can it debug remote INDI? I'm running EKOS on the laptop, but INDI on the mount computer...

openSUSE Tumbleweed KStars git INDI git
GPDX+EQMOD, CEM60EC, ASI1600+EFW+EAF+ASI290 mini

No, since it needs to launch INDI. You'd run it on the mount computer then.

Not yet, but I'd imagine this tool would improve over time to support all OSes.

Is there any reason you wouldn't want to run this all the time?

Excellent question. Yes there is a good reason: Performance.

Running via debugger (gdb) is always slower.

Is there a nightly that works with Astroberry?
I tried to build from git but it I got an error, am I missing a dependency (I haven't built Kstars I just use the bleeding edge version from the repo)

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/Projects/ekosdebugger
CMake Warning:
No source or binary directory provided. Both will be assumed to be the
same as the current working directory, but note that this warning will
become a fatal error in future CMake releases.


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:14 (find_package):
By not providing "FindQt5.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has
asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5", but
CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5" with any of
the following names:

Add the installation prefix of "Qt5" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "Qt5_DIR"
to a directory containing one of the above files. If "Qt5" provides a
separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.
